Letters: Unpatriotic editor

Letter writer takes exception to recent editorial on "branding" Sooke

I am angry and insulted by Pirjo Raits’ article, “The case for “branding” Sooke” on April 4.

How dare she say there is only the fine arts show for a public event. I have nothing against the art show but it is a paid event that appeals to only a certain segment of the community. As for the All Sooke Day, I am tired of hearing about it. It may have been good in its day, but it is no longer viable.

Where is her patriotism? There was no mention of the Canada Day event. The small group of people work hard to put this day on. Granted, it is only a one-day event but it is free and there are things for the whole family to do. There was even an article about this event in the Toronto Globe and Mail.

One would wonder if Pirjo is even in Sooke on July 1st.
